We consider overall strategy, how many programs one should apply to, the relative merits of one- and two-year programs, and state versus private universities. We discuss the importance of college grades and GRE scores, the etiquette of requesting letters of recommendation, and the format of the all-important writing sample. Finally, the advantages and disadvantages of studying creative writing in an academic setting, and the value of the degree itself, are addressed.
